Edgehill 3 (Ramm 2, Gill) Westover Wasps 4 (McKenzie-Fenwick 3, White OG)

Dave Gaddass’ Westover Wasps side produced a shock result by beating Edgehill 4-3.

Wasps led 4-0 through a hat-trick from Tom McKenzie-Fenwick and an unfortunate own goal by Edgehill defender Danny White.

The away side could have extended their lead but Aiden McCallion’s penalty was saved by Rory Skelton in the Edgehill goal.

Edgehill rallied after the break after introducing former Scarborough Athletic midfielder Joel Ramm and clawed their way back into the game.

Scarborough Town centre back Baz Gill made it 4-1 before a Ramm brace gave Edgehill hope.

But Gaddass’ men held firm for a fine win.

Sam O’Flanagan was Westover’s stand-out performer on the day.


Newlands Reserves 3 (Delve, Freer, Bates) FC Rosette 1 (A Wray)

Newlands Reserves picked up maximum points after seeing off Rosette at home.

Goals from Daniel Freer, new signing Luke Delve and Stuart Bates saw them comfortably to the 3-1 win.

Rosette player-manager Al Wray got the away side’s solitary goal from the penalty spot.

Ayton Reserves 2 (Duggan. McNeil) Athletico2B 5 (Goodwin 3, B David, Dodson)

Kev David’s Athletico2B side got back to winning ways after a strong second half display helped them get the better of Ayton Reserves.

Ben David side-footed in in the first minute to put the away side in front but debutant striker TJ Duggan levelled things up.

Athletico were in front at the interval though, Shaun Goodwin burying from the edge of the box after the Ayton keeper had parried out to him.

The away side improved after the break, Goodwin getting two more goals to seal his hat-trick and put his side into a commanding 4-1 lead.

Ayton fired back through Chris McNeil, but a well-worked short corner saw the ball land at the feet of Shaun Dodson, who rounded things off at 5-2 for the away side.

Sleights 6 (Watson 3, Faichney, Fawcett, Martin) Seamer Reserves 0

Sleights remain top of the table after a Ben Watson hat-trick helped them past Seamer.

The home side struck first inside five minutes when Watson fired home and James Fawcett quickly doubled their advantage.

Watson grabbed his second of the game on 25 minutes and Jake Faichney effectively wrapped things up before the break when he made it 4-0.

Watson now has 21 goals for the season already after firing his second hat-trick in as many weeks and Andy Martin, on his return from an ankle injury, completed the rout late on.

Cayton Reserves 1 West Pier Reserves 6 (Lee 3, Speight 2, Weetman)

Another side very much in the promotion mix-up are West Pier Reserves, who won 6-1 at struggling Cayton Reserves.

West Pier were 1-0 up at the break, Jamie Lee bagging the only goal of the opening exchanges.

Pier upped their game in the second half and Lee netted two more goals to complete his hat-trick.

Rob Speight added a brace and Chris Weetman’s strike ended things at 6-1 for Dave Crawford’s men.

Rob Worthy and Ray Thorpe dominated in the centre of the Pier midfield.

Falsgrave Reserves 0 Westover Wasps Reserves 5 (Stanley 3, Townsend, Bean penalty)

Westover sealed three points from their game at Falsgrave Reserves, which had to be switched from Filey to Oliver’s Mount.

Ben Stanley was in form for the visitors, netting a hat-trick.

Former first team manager Chris Townsend scored and a Mark Bean penalty rounded things off.
